It’s a meal that makes sense when it comes from a food truck and when it’s served on china at a fancy restaurant. It tastes just as good smothered with cheese, sauce, and pickles as it does at its most simple. Somehow, it is both lowbrow and highbrow, but it’s so delicious it doesn’t really matter.
